    Nice job so far, just a suggestion. Get some of that rubber u channel stuff. I would put it around the hole you cut for the pc bracket, so it doesn't scratch that big nice fancy power supply of yours, just something i would personally do. You can find the stuff in the US from mnpctech's online store.

    Nice Mod so far! I like what you've done. and your pics and explanations. I really like the look of the white plexi interior and the cable hiding, and the dvd drive stealthing. Can you explain more or show more pics of how you attached the mesh front to the dvd front?
    Also, have you thought about making the flame grill (now in metal, stick out in front of a different colored layer of plexi, perhaps lit light the case top and other parts? It's hard to make out for me in the night pics.
